Silent Partner Expectations Bar/Restaurant

What should a silent investor expect for fully funding a new bar and restaurant?
I pitched my first sports bar idea to an investor and they said yes immediately. The deal was that they remain silent, they fund 100% of the start-up costs for a 25% stake in the company.
I felt I was very lucky to get the first person I pitched this deal to say yes but with that said I had a 4 inch thick business plan that was extremely thorough and proved that I know the business very well.
I am now ready to pitch a second bar idea. This is on a bigger scale and will require a $800,000 investment and I am not sure my 25% approach was even correct the first time.
What are some common silent partner investment scenarios?
It was suggested by a new partner for this venture that the investor gets the following:
$800,000 invested
8% interest per year on investment paid quarterly ($16,000 per quarter)
8% of net profits until investment is paid off (paid annually)
5% continuing net profits paid annually
Balloon payment after year 8
Any help is much appreciated.
Thank you
